E-classroom Support


At Rhode Island College, most electronic classrooms and teaching labs are equipped with multimedia equipment to enhance teaching and learning. Currently, the College has nearly 200 electronic classrooms distributed across the campus. We group the electronic classrooms and labs by levels to help identify the type of equipment in each room. We currently have 5 levels (0-4). There are also five auditorium facilities which are equipped with multimedia and other technology-related equipment. We ask you to assist us by reserving electronic classrooms only when you intend to use the special equipment on a regular basis.

*Gaige 253/257 and Horace Mann 185/186/189/190 have a mounted SMARTBoard in the front of the room. Over on the second floor of Henry Barnard School, you will find one portable SMARTBoard that can be wheeled in one of the STEM rooms (HBS 205/212/214/215). You will need a laptop to plug into the portable unit. If you don't have a laptop and you want to use the portable SMARTBoard, you can call the HelpDesk at 456-8803 to reserve a laptop for your class.
